Dancing with the Stars Recap: A Perfect Score!

by at . Comments

We were seriously afraid that season nine of Dancing with the Stars would come and go without a perfect score.

The contestants have simply been that weak.

But Mya and Dmitry Chaplin brought their A-games last night, almost combining for 60 perfect points across two dances. Instead, they had to settle for 59, highlighted by a Samba that received rave reviews from all judges.

Len referred to the singer's hips as "hypnotic;" Bruno said it was a "mean, mean samba;" and Carrie Ann exclaimed: "Everything was perfect. It was beyond belief."

Can we please hand these two the trophy already?

Here's a look at last night's leaderboard, which featured a pair of routines for all five remaining quarterfinalists:

  • Mya and Dmitry Chaplin: 59
  • Joanna Krupa and Derek Hough: 52
  • Kelly Osbourne and Louis van Amstel: 51
  • Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff: 50
  • Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson: 50

On tonight's elimination show, Michael Bublé and Susan Boyle will perform. Who do you think should go home?


Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
